Redesigned backbone bars for the ACE with same expanded mesh to match front/rear bumpers. Center section will also be closed off in mesh for storage rack. Center is perfect size for tacklebox, small cooler or toolbag.
Axe & compact shovel will be mounted to each side along with quick release extinguisher mount. Will also add fishing rod holders at rear along with dual whip flag mounts on each side.

Although I never need full area of cargo box other than for medium bag, backbones are easily removable for larger items. Also just added rear LED work lights to cage.

Thanks guys! That's why I didn't block off sides of rack, spare tire mount can clamp on each side. Leaving sides open also allows for carrying longer items across rack. 2 gallon fuel can should also fit nice up top.
Personally don't need the storage space, just like look of backbones but figured just as well add more use for it. Backbones are more for smaller items as rad relocate has left the front end noticeably lighter.

When start dual battery install, battery/fuse box will go up front in empty rad area...should easily account for the weight loss.

Backbones pretty much finished. I scrapped the mini flag mounts on each side & just put single flag mount at center. Quick-fist clamps for axe & shovel are going on each lower side of backbones.
I never carry anything larger than small cooler or tacklebox, so there's just enough room to squeeze stuff into the bed. Anything else can go up on the backbones.

Also going to cut & rotate exhaust outlet slightly, just to avoid the ugly black spot on rear brush guard.
